I would also choose C.

X talks about Congressional campaign reform but Y talks about political reform. And they have a different means of achieving them.

Id all go with A on this one.

Speaker X says we must change all the steps, from start to finish. In this case finish will include the way congress works when passing the bill.

Speaker Y, goes straigh to the end, skipping many steps that Speaker X wants changed. Therefore, the outcome wanted is the same, only Y goes straight to the heart, and X wants to follow the process all the way from inception.

Hope I am right!
